Happy New Year everyone! I have been completely enjoying my time off since finishing up my student teaching. It was a very long, hard seven weeks but I am finally done AND managed to get an A in the class thanks to the good communication I had with my professor and coordinators at my college. They were able to see that it was obviously not true what the teacher was saying and what she was doing was very wrong. Anyway, I am so very glad it is behind me now and I officially have my Master's Degree and am waiting on my teaching certificate. Until then, and until I find a permanent position, I will be substitute teaching. I am really looking forward to it.
As far as my "Journey to Health" has been going, well the holidays took their toll on me again. I got down to 185 at the end of my student teaching and this morning on the 1st was back to 190. So still a 15 pound loss overall. And I am now ready to have 2012 be my year to becoming the healthy person I know I can be.
I have started another page with my 2012 goals on it (the link is on the right hand side). I am going to work on daily/weekly goals, monthly goals and then overall goals that I hope to accomplish in 2012. Some are small, some are really big, but I know if I put my mind to it I can accomplish anything. I really want to look back on this year as the year I took control of my life. Tomorrow I am meeting a friend at the gym to get started and hitting the grocery after for some healthy food...so here we go!
